Computer technology has offered many benefits for almost every field of industry, and workers often find they sit in front of monitors for large portions of the day. Unfortunately, this activity can lead to problems with vision and a condition called “computer vision syndrome,” At Kopolow & Giresgen Optometrists in Las Vegas, NV, we offer relieve from discomfort and vision problems caused by long hours at the computer.
An individual’s eyes must move back and forth continuously and can be adversely affected by the computer screen’s flicker, glare, and contrast. The problem can not only affect adults but also children, who now spend significant amounts of time on devices, reading, playing games and doing homework.
Individuals may experience blurred vision, a dry feeling in the eyes, double vision, headache, neck pain or back pain. Many people experience constant eye irritation, as well. The problems can affect your ability to perform well for work tasks or school tasks.
Position the screen to avoid glare to avoid common eyestrain from computer work. Anti-glare screens can also be helpful. You may be more comfortable viewing the screen by looking downward. Take rest breaks periodically throughout the day to rest your eyes. Remember to blink frequently to moisturize the eyes. Your Las Vegas optometrist can help with special eyeglasses or tinted lenses to help you work more comfortably.
